The Special Blend Proper Jacket has nothing to do with prissiness and everything to do with delicious faux-fur lining.
Special Blend made the Women's Proper Jacket with a full, plush faux-fur lining, which means you feel luxuriously warm even thought it's butt-freezing on the hill. Since riding in wet faux fur would be really gross, the Proper Jacket has 15K-rated waterproof fabric and fully taped seams. Open the Underarm zips when it warms up, and stash glove liners and lip balm in the front cargo and chest pockets. The Special Blend Proper Jacket's feminine cut leaves enough room for light layering underneath, the hood adds head warmth, and the powder skirt keeps snow from sneaking in.

Does it run small or small-ish? I'm usually a small, but all that's left is the extra-small.
Here is the Sizing for the S 32"33.5" (8185 cm) and XS 30"31.5" (7780 cm). You have to measure yourself and see what size you are. Grab a tape measure do it up.
I am completely happy with this snowboarding jacket. I am almost 6ft and have long arms, the large fits me perfectly. I simply love the brown polka dots! nice and warm.
This jacket ROCKS!
I love this jacket! I am always cold so I needed something that would keep me super warm. I just rode this at Whistler in -7degree F and the only thing that froze was my face! LOVE it! It is stylish enough to wear around town and looks good on the mtn. Size is pretty right on - fits perfect. I haven't had any problems with the quality and I wear it all the time. Actually it seems pretty tough/durable. My boyfriend jokes that he's glad he likes it because he never sees me without it.
This jacket is way awesome for the price! It's SUPER warm and one of the best snowboarding jackets I've had.
Love the Eggshell!
I love this jacket...wearing it lots off the mountain. The polka dots are the perfect girly touch for a tomboy like myself and I love the super soft inside (very nice for the trip to the hot tub). There are lots of extras that make the jacket useful on the mountain. I am a bit curvier than the average snowboarder and was a little disappointed in the way that the jacket is cut. It's a little tighter than what I would like around the hips, so it sits up a bit instead of hanging nicely. I bought a large and it didn't help much. but for all you tiny girls, I don't see a negative to this jacket! The eggshell color is sweet and not many others on the mountain are wearing this color...
Looks good but not functional
This is a good looking jacket, but not very warm. The bottom snap fell off the fist day i rode in it and i put my earings in the breast pocket to find that the seam had already ripped in the bottom of the pocket! There is defenetly some design flaws in it as well: - ipod pocket not functional as you have to totally unzip everything to get to it and there is not where for the cords to go. powder skirt snaps only attach to special blend pants. Pockets are small and pretty useless. Like most girls gear these days this jacket is fashion not function...
